Donation Boosts ‘When Love Hurts’
Spurred by Amy Monk, senior legal counsel for Albany International Corp.,the Rochester, NH-based company has donated $1,000 to the NH Bar Association’s Law-Related Education program to help with expenses for the newly launched “When Love Hurts” educational program on teen dating violence.
NH Bar Association President Jaye Rancourt presents teen dating violence prevention program “When Love Hurts” to students at Concord High School in observance of Law Day in New Hampshire.
Monk was one of the attorneys who served on an ad-hoc group that assisted NHBA President Jaye Rancourt in developing a curriculum to take to schools to discuss the rights, responsibilities and realities of teens in recognizing and preventing violence or abusive behavior in dating relationships.
The program launched May 1 as part of “A Lawyer and Judge in Every School Day” and received significant media attention and positive reviews from schools, sparking additional schools and organizations asking for programs to be scheduled.
